Living Like Tourists

Dave's family spent most of August with us (i.e. the babies were spoiled rotten and I didn't have to cook).  Late last week, Dave's sister and her family cruised through for a long weekend, part of what they lovingly called 'The Southern Relativity Tour'.

So, while they were here we lived like tourists and rode the horse-drawn trolley through historic downtown.  I'm surprised to say it was actually entertaining.  Aside from Finn's nearly successful escape attempt before the tour began, the babies had a fairly decent time.

Don't let the look on Lady Belle's face deceive you, she had a lovely time.

Finn, clearly plotting his chance to escape when I'm least aware.

The next day we drove to Topsail Beach to visit the sea turtle hospital.  It was amazing.  Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take photos inside the hospital.

The remainder of our time was divided between cooking heavenly meals (I actually helped) and hanging on the beach.  We had a blast and the twins already miss their cousins.
